Cakes of the Month

Claire and I made a LOST themed cake for the finale last night. It was four layers of chocolate and vanilla cake alternated. We used cream cheese frosting and covered it in white and black fondant. It was quite the spontaneous cake made in an afternoon!

My nephew Iain's 1st birthday was on Saturday and I made him a lion cake inspired by his favorite stuffed animal.

It is a 10" vanilla cake with Wilton's orange coloring added to make it more lion-ish. I used my favorite frosting and all the add-ons are made of fondant.

This month might be my favorite month for cakes! :)
